Army Awards Forensic Contract

In our continuing saga of the Department of Defense buys a great deal of different things the Army awarded a contract to American Systems to provide IT support for criminal forensics services. This while it may seem like the U.S. Army is getting into the CSI business is really not that surprising. Under this one year with four option yeas American Systems will provide support for the Defense Forensic Enterprise System (DFES) in use for both military criminal investigations and combat operations. If all options on the contract are exercised it will be worth up to $145 million.

The contract is structured for task orders and this award qualifies American Systems to compete for discrete task orders. This means that despite qualifying there is no guarantee that the company will receive any work or revenue. The Army has used these type of contracts commonly with SETA support to their large acquisition commands to allow entities to buy the necessary services from qualified vendors.
